Lexus makes its play at the hot small-SUV segment with luxurious and likable UX
25 Jan 2019
LEXUS Australia’s sales have steadily been growing since the luxury brand’s local introduction, but as of yet, it has not managed to crack a year-end figure over 10,000 units.
This year however, that’s all expected to change as the all-new UX small SUV is introduced and expected to add about 2500 incremental sales to Lexus’ bottom line.
Entering the booming luxury small-SUV segment that is currently dominated by the likes of the long-established Mercedes-Benz GLA, BMW X1 and Audi Q3, the Lexus UX is facing an uphill battle for market share.
However, with sharp pricing, the only hybrid powertrain in the segment and stunning looks, the Japanese premium brand is hoping to make substantial inroads in market penetration, but is the UX actually worth your hard-earned cash?
